The Cybernetic Deconstruction Arm...

Post by Monty Burns » Wed Jun 25, 2008 9:50 pm

I haven't seen this listed on this website (if it already is then by all means delete this post) but just about every REing Engineer in the guild has been trying to get this in recent days...

I just cut and paste this from SWG-Wiki.
http://swg.wikia.com/wiki/Resource_Sampling

These collection items can only be obtained from Hand Sampling for resources on any planet surface. The collection is completed when you have successfully gathered 5/5 of Mineral, Chemical, Gas, Organic, Water, and Geo-Thermal Energy.

How to Hand Sample: Simply survey for a resource that you desire, once completed either press sample on your survey tool or type /sample to begin sampling for the desired resourse. The collection begins when you are given a pop-up window with three selections. One selection (thrid from the top) asks if you would like to obtain a high quality product of the resource you are gathering. This must be done 5 times in order to complete each resource field.

Reward: This right handed cybernetic arm provides +110 to luck and +5 to Reverse Engineering.

After 1.5 hours of handsampling with a droid out, I can say for sure it doesn't count. Had the event window popping out many many times but always with only 2 options (the classic ones)

Currently (Chapter 10.2, late June 2008) there's a bug with sampling water on Corellia. You get the dialog with the three options, and the system message about a tiny sample of extreme purity, but it's not recorded in your Collections viewer.

So... I do the sampling thing, and get the reward. "You must register the Star Wars Galaxies Episode III Expansion in order to equip cybernetic items."

Awww, crud. This particular account has always been crafter and has never had any [need|use|desire] for adventure planet expansions.

Until now.

As far as i can see this Collection only grants a BM Special and no left Arm.

No, it is not entirely correct. It grants a Pet Knowledge cube, Resource Scavenger, that gives you 50% bonus to manual sampling when having a trained pet out. You can train as many pets as you can have in your Datapad, and having one out with this skill will grant you a 50% extra yield. Good to have while sampling at Mustafar :)

However, you can do the two collections at the same time while sampling. Randomly it will count towards your pet, or towards the deconstruction arm. Just have any pet out (not a mount though).

From SWGWiki...

Resource Scavenger

These collection items can only be obtained from Hand Sampling for resources on any planet surface while a pet is active. The collection is completed when you have successfully gathered 20/20 of any type of resource

How to Hand Sample: Note: You must have your pet out for the correct selection to be activated. Simply survey for a resource that you desire, once completed either press sample on your survey tool or type /sample to begin sampling for the desired resource. The collection begins when you are given a pop-up window of a "survey event" with three selections. One selection (thrid from the top) asks if you would like to have your beast obtain the sample of the resource you are gathering. This must be done 20 times in order to complete each resource field.


Reward: A small amount of XP and a Beast Master Special Ability

* Beast Knowledge Resource Scavenger


http://swg.wikia.com/wiki/Resource_Scavenger

It gives a 50% increase in the amount of manually sampled resources however I have not really noticed this to be the case in fact during a 5 hour trial on Mustafar I gathered fractionally less resources than a character that did not have this buff on while sampling at the same location and at the same time so I do not know if it works or not.

Now when you mention it, I have a vague memory that I read at the official forums that it was broken. Anyone confirm, please?

You're welcome :)

Bonus to hand sampling is great the day you find that uber spawn at Mustafar, remember that since Mustafarian resource classes has lower caps to most stats it is guaranteed to spawn decent at the worst. It is another story if the uber stats are those you need, at the same time ;)

So, now that I've gotten this arm, what's the special trick to equipping it?

Visit a Medical Center in for example Mos Eisley, Coronet, or Theed. Possibly more locations, I don't know.

Find a droid there that will make the necessary surgery.

The operation will knock off clothing that occupy that arm and the glove (I think there is one kind of glove that works though), but the net effect on REChance and Luck is positive whatsoever.
